Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

A Bright To-Morrow

If aught of thy life should be savored with sorrow

Author: F. H. Jacobs
Tune: [If aught of thy life should be savored with sorrow]
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 If aught of thy life should be savored with sorrow,
Or part of thy pathway o'ershadowed with gloom,
Then be not dismayed, 'twill be better tomorrow,
When the sun shall break forth in the splendor of noon,

Then to Jesus draw near,
Ever be of good cheer;
Then to Jesus draw near,
Ever be of good cheer,
He knows all thy sorrow,
And thy pray'r he will hear.

2 Should ever the weight of a sad thought perplex thee;
Or waken a chord that sounds harsh to thine ear,
Then whisper a pray'r, for thy Savior will hear thee;
And mark the sweet chime in the fall of a tear, [Chorus]

3 Go gather the sunshine and scatter it sweetly;
Where needed assistance is ever made known,
Be one of the few who in life's course completely
Are lost to themselves, but their Savior enthrone, [Chorus]
